Cowboy Bebop Season 2: Release Date Info – Is it really canceled?

cowboy bebop season 2

Cowboy Bebop Season 2 is the much-awaited live-action series after its Season 1 was released on Netflix on 19 November 2021. As we know the series was based on Japanese anime of the same name which was first released in 1998, and one film on the same anime was released in 2001.

Is Cowboy Bebop Season 2 happening or canceled by Netflix?

The series was appreciated by the anime fans and the manga series lovers too, and overall hits on the page of live-action was also good but by declaring it as a poor franchise reboot method Netflix finally canceled the series as per Hollywood Reporter. So, we would not be able to watch the Cowboy Bebop in the future in the live-action version. Although season 2 was ended with a major cliffhanger yet Netflix canceled the series because of several anime and live-action series line-up too, which had already performed well on the streaming giant.

The reason behind the Cancelation of Season 2

Cowboy Bebop has got 46% ratings by critics on Rotten Tomatoes, although it was loved by the anime fans as the rating by the audience is 56%. But as per the standards of Netflix, the ratings were not up to the mark. So, Basically, this was the main reason behind the cancellation of Cowboy Bebop Season 2.


The second major reason was the poor adaptation of the environment of anime, the fans were expecting the same of the original anime, which was really very fresh and the characterization was very good by the Japanese creators.

The changes in major plots and few plotholes in the live-action series was also the reason behind the downfall of the audience of the series. The characterization of anime characters and their conversion in live-action series was looking more like mimicking the anime, the characters were not just adapted and developed rather they were just copied and pasted in the live-action series. I think the proper time was not given to the scripting and characters part of the series, rather the series’s main focus was on the animation and live-action capturing, that’s why the saul of the series was somehow looking missing.

How Creators had thought about Season 2?

If the Cowboy Bebop Season 2 would be made ever then the series would explore the chemistry of Spike and Julia would be explored more as in the anime they had met at the end of the series then the live-action version was somehow different. So the creators would have played with their chemistry, and as Ed has appeared into the dynamics at the end of Season 1 so we could have seen him joining the Bebop team in the Cowboy Bebop Season 2.

The actual cast of the Series:

The live-action series was created by Christopher Yost who is best known for his work in Thor: The Dark World, Thor: Ragnarok, and Secret Headquarters and the TV Series The Mandalorian. Means the writing part was good but the characterization was weak I think. The Cast who was there in Season 1 are as follows:

  • Daniella Pineda played the role of Faye Valentine
  • John Cho was the Spike Spiegel
  • Elena Satine was the one who had played Julia
  • Mustafa Shakir was the man behind the character Jet Black
  • Vicious was played by the actor Alex Hassell
  • Lucy Curry had played the role of Punch and Sin was played by Ann Truong
